Survivorship & Advocacy
- Beers, Bro's and Balls
B.B.B. is a Testicular Cancer Survivor's Happy Hour sponsored by the Brady Urological Institute and Ulman Cancer Fund. One of the biggest challenges for TC survivors is a feeling of alienation - as most boys and men going through this disease do not know any other survivors. B.B.B. is a chance for survivors and their families to mix and mingle, to share their stories, and ask questions of other survivors going through various stages of treatment and cure. B.B.B. are held quarterly.
- The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is a local, Maryland organization that works at a grassroots level to support, educate, connect, and empower young adult cancer survivors. The Ulman Fund works closely with our Testicular Cancer Survivors and supports our advocacy, awareness and social events including "Grab Life by the Balls" Screening Events, Charity Sporting Events, and "Beers, Bro's and Balls" Survivorship Happy Hours.
